Now I don’t want to bang on about it but I just want to share some more info about what goes into our clothing and why hemp is just the best!
Conventional fabric manufacturing is one of the most toxic processes in the world. Traditional crops like cotton dump millions of tons of pesticides into the environment worldwide each year, while sucking up our precious water supply. Just why are pesticides, dyes, and chemicals so terrible? Well, anything designed to kill indiscriminately can’t be good (see Aliens 1-4), but did you know that many of these chemicals are also epigenetic? That means that the changes they make to us at a genetic level in our generation become heritable to our children, grand-children, great-grand-children…Does this suddenly make “wrapping your goodies in environmentally friendly goodness” seem like a really good plan?
Hemp is the super star of eco-fabrics. Hemp is so green it has actually been used as a carbon-negative crop. It requires no pesticides, little weeding, and grows like the dickens. It even enriches the soil it leaves behind. Hemp has been used for millennia in clothing around the world, and requires no chemicals to be spun into cloth.
-so green it’s carbon negative
-strongest natural fibre
-enriches the soil it is grown in
-used for thousands of years
-blocks UV rays
It’s a no brainer as far as I’m concerned. Join the hemp revolution and be apart of building a brighter future for our planet!
